SLK vs SKN: Caribbean Premier League 2021: Match Prediction
It will be a high-pressure contest as both sides haven’t won the title in the past. Saint Lucia Kings had defeated the Patriots in both the games earlier, but the side looks weak without the services of their regular skipper. Their bowling attack lacks variety, and this is a concern for the side. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on the other hand come here with all their bases covered. They have a strong top order, and this would put them slightly ahead of the Kings to win the title.
